This Kitchen Was Transformed In Just Three Months & On A Budget!

Gillian Atkins, managing partner at Lynda Reeves Design Studio, spills the tea (and the numbers) on her budget-friendly kitchen makeover.

“I bought a century home in August 2020 for me and my three sons, Euan, 14, and twins, Oliver and Rhys, 12. It wasn’t pretty, but it had good bones — one of those coveted, diamond-in-the-rough construction projects. With a tight closing date, I had just three months to complete a renovation and move my family in. What could go wrong? Well, add a global pandemic, and my contractor Rob and I had our work cut out for us… not to mention that I’m a designer and my clients have to come first! A lot of the decisions for this reno were driven by what I was able to do quickly, efficiently and inexpensively — oh, and it had to look beautiful, too.”
